Learning targets are a big thing in schools these days. Well, that gave me an idea for Orff instruments. I have been really trying to think how to get kids to tap in the center of the bars where you get the best sound and the bars don’t come flying off. Since I have put colors on the bars, the youngest students want to hit the pretty colors. I have solved that by literally having them hit the targets. I just made a full sheet of target labels. Two fit in each standard address label, cut them, and then tape over them to help them stick.
Now THAT’s hitting the target in music!
